I believe that Harper High School really cares for their students. When students leave Harper they leave with a lot of scholarship money and career readiness. However, I would like to see more classes that involve health care related themes. Many students leaving Harper major in nursing or the medical field and I believe that these classes will help students become ready for college and their future career.

Harper was a great school! I loved being in a small teaching environment such as a 2A high school. It gave me one on one time with the teachers which really helped my academics. I moved here in 4th grade from a really big 5A school and didn't have the greatest grades. After moving to Harper, I was an all A student all through school.
My school that I have attended since pre-k is a 2a, which means we're all extremely close and have pretty much have all grown up together. You definitely won't get near the relationships I have at Harper then any other school!
